Sonian Announces eMail Archiving and eDiscovery Support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Hosted, Cloud-Based Service Update Complements Pre-Existing Affordable, Secure and Easy-to-Use Support for Exchange 2003 and 2007

NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - Sonian, Inc., the trusted cloud-powered universal data management company, today announced email archiving and ediscovery support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 beginning immediately. The Sonian Archive Service provides Microsoft Exchange 2010 customers of all sizes with an affordable, scalable, reliable, secure and feature-rich hosted email archiving and ediscovery service.

As the first platform-agnostic, Cloud-based email archiving service, Sonian ensures that its Sonian platform incorporates technology updates from its messaging partners as they occur. In the case of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Sonian leverages its hosted services to establish an organizational archive that complements Exchange 2010's personal archive functionality for the long-term storage and retention management of email and historical PST content without an impact to the production email environment.

"Among all enterprise mail platforms, the Microsoft Exchange provides an easily configurable archiving option," said George Nichols, CEO of Sonian. "Sonian supports all the configuration options within Microsoft Exchange. Whether an organization chooses to write the archived messages to a local folder or mailbox or stream them to an external address, Sonian allows you to be up and running with your Microsoft Exchange archiving within an hour."

An on-demand hosted service, Sonian Archive enables Exchange users to get up and running quickly without investing in any additional hardware or software infrastructure. The service also satisfies all governance, risk and compliance requirements; and provides litigation support and ediscovery, storage resource management, business continuity and best business practices. With the Sonian Archive Service, Microsoft Exchange customers receive:

--  Compliant archiving: Sonian locks down mailboxes and/or post offices
    and prevents users from removing messages from their Trash until they have
    been successfully captured by the Sonian collection service in a compliant
    and secure way. It also archives File System and SharePoint content.
--  Unlimited, cost-effective storage: Sonian Archive takes advantage of
    unlimited and low-cost Cloud storage to archive enterprise emails and other
    user-generated content for an affordable monthly fee usually between $3.00
    and $5.00/month.
--  Millisecond search and analysis of dark data: Unlike other hosted
    archive offerings that reduce costs by migrating older data to offline or
    near-line storage systems, Sonian Archive keeps all data online and
    immediately accessible from any internet connection 24 hours a day. Its
    powerful search engine delivers rapid search results on all historic data.
--  Self-training UIs: Sonian user interfaces are intuitive for all skill
    set levels, and extensive self-service online training videos guide users
    through all tasks.
--  Improved Microsoft Exchange performance: Without the need to retain
    large Exchange databases, timeframes for backup and restoration windows
    shorten and upgrading to new service packs and versions of Exchange becomes
    much, much easier.
